✨✧ MorrisseyBona Drag (2LP anniversary edition – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Sire/Reprise, 1990. Sealed 2LP (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
A seminal solo set from Morrissey – one that brings together all the singles and EP tracks he issued in the last few years of the 80s – when he moved away from the solid album format of Viva Hate, and just let his ideas hit the market as they came to him! That approach was a bit like that of The Smiths – who sometimes meant more to the world in their progression of singles than albums – but it was also frustrating to fans in the digital age, especially Americans, who had less access to singles in that format – hence the need for this full length set, which turned out to be one of the strongest full statements by the singer after stepping out on his own. Titles include "Piccadilly Palare", "Interesting Drug", "November Spawned A Monster", "Ouija Board Ouija Board", "Everyday Is Like Sunday", "The Last Of The Famous International Playboys", and "Suedehead". 2LP pressing features the bonus tracks and improved mastering of the 2010 20th Anniversary edition!

Julie FelixClotho's Web (plus bonus singles) ... LP
RAK, 1972. Very Good- Gatefold ... $7.99
A pretty wild mix of airy acoustic folk and some surprisingly rockish touches from Julie Felix – the 1972 album Clotho's Web recorded with producer Mickie Most for RAK Records – which mixes some rockish elements of electric bass and heavy drums in spots, without taking away the acoustic folk revivalist touches. Julie's voice is versatile, and conveys moods masterfully, and the sound is a pretty sweet mix of pop and rock ready moods with more traditional elements. Titles include "Clotho's Web", "Windy Morning", "Fire Water Earth & Air", "Clickety Clack", "Hills Of May", "Moonlight", "Happiness", "The Lean Years", "Summer Of Fire" and "Lady".

King CrimsonThree Of A Perfect Pair – 30th Anniversary Edition ... CD
Caroline, 1984. Used Gatefold ... $4.99
The last of the "revival" King Crimson from the early 80s – featuring the lineup that included Robert Fripp, Adrian Belew, Bill Bruford, and Tony Levin. The style is fairly academic, but Belew's presence still gives the record a bit of heart – something that Fripp had trouble doing on his own, even after all these years. Titles include "Dig Me", "Industry", "Lark's Tongue In Aspic Part 3", "Three Of a Perfect Pair", and "Sleepless". Also included are "King Crimson Barber Shop", "Industrial Zone A", "Industrial Zone B", and three mixes of "Sleepless"! CD

PrisonersThewisermiserdemelza (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Big Beat (UK), 1983. New Copy ... $14.99
Wonderful sounds from The Prisoners – an ultra-hip UK combo from the early 80s, and one who never fully got their due – although their keyboardist James Taylor later rose to great fame in the funk, soul, and acid jazz scenes! The Prisoners are a bit of a mod revival group, but have also gotten a lot more psych-oriented by this time in their career – at a level that really prefaces work to come from the Creation Records scene – and which makes us wonder if The Prisoners would have rose with the fame of those groups, had they held on a few years longer! Taylor's organ lines tie together the raspy vocals, tight drums, and riffing guitars – which almost have a Jam-like tightness at times, but are looser and more trippy at others. Titles include "Go Go", "Hurricane", "Tonight", "Love Me Lies", "Far Away", "For Now & Forever", and "Here Come The Misunderstood". CD features 11 more bonus tracks added to the original album – including "Coming Home", "The Last Thing On Your Mind", "Reaching My Head", "Tomorrow", "Love Changes", "Revenge Of The Cybermen", and "What I Want".

SpiderLabyrinths ... CD
Capitol, 1972. New Copy ... $19.99
A very groovy group from the oft-overlooked early 70s years at Capitol Records – a time when the company was bringing some very interesting acts into the studio, which were often lost amidst their bigger hits of the time! Spider have a sound that's warmer and more personal than their name – this cool blend of roots rock with warmer harmonies – almost as if America were recording with more of a down-home vibe. The quartet has one female member, which expands the vocal approach nicely – and they also get help on the backings from lots of hip studio cats – including Rita Jean Bodine, King Errison, Vanetta Fields, Clydie King, and Alan Parker – in arrangements from Dee Barton and Jim Horn. Titles include "May 16th", "Pass It On", "Puppets", "Revival", "Burnin", "Southwind", and "Little Love Song". CD

Steely DanGaucho ... CD
MCA, 1980. Used ... $2.99
The last album in the classic run of Steely Dan – the final taste we'd have of the group until their surprising revival in the 90s! Gaucho picks up beautifully where Aja left off – warmly produced with a deep undercurrent of jazz, but perhaps a bit more down to earth feel at times too – not in the music, which is still up there in the heavens, but in some of the subject matter of the tunes, which almost takes us back to Royal Scam territory. Donald Fagan's vocals are wonderful throughout – a sound for which there's no referent or real description – and the balance in the instrumentation is near perfect on tunes that include "Babylon Sisters", "Hey Nineteen", "Time Out Of Mind", "My Rival", "Glamour Profession", and "Gaucho".

✨✧ VariousLadies Of Too Slow To Disco – More Late 70s West Coast Yachtpop You Can Almost Dance To (180 gram pressing with download) ... LP
How Do You Are (Germany), Late 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $28.99
A great set of tracks that's billed as music "you can almost dance to" – and which hits this sweet midtempo groove throughout – filled with female vocals, and served up in a wicked soulful style of AOR! The collection's an excellent all-girl companion to the previous Too Slow To Disco sets – and may well be the best so far, as there's a current of soul that maybe didn't show up that strongly before – as the singers unabashedly go for deeper modes in some of their vocals, while the instrumental side of the tracks glow nicely with sweet keyboards, riffing guitars, and just the right touch of slightly funky rhythms! There's plenty of gems here we might have overlooked otherwise – definitely the best side of the "yacht rock" revival of the past few years – and tracks include "You Can Do It" by Evie Sands, "Be Here In The Morning" by Renee Geyer, "Gotta Lotta" by Lauren Wood, "It's The Falling In Love" by Carol Baker Sayer, "Crazy" by Valerie Carter, "Isn't It Something" by Franne Golde, "Opening Up To You" by Laura Allen, "Temptation" by Leah Kunkel, "Disco Tech" by Carole King, "Dance The Night Away" by Doris Abrahams, and "Take Me With You" by Lyn Christopher.

VariousLes Annes Saravah – 1967 to 2002 ... CD
Saravah/Fremeaux & Associates (France), Late 60s/Early 70s/Late 90s/Early 2000s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $18.99 29.99
A beautiful tribute to the legendary French label Saravah – founded by songwriter Pierre Barouh with his royalties from the worldwide hit "A Man & A Woman" – then run for decades as a model of recording innovation and collaborative creativity! The sound of Saravah is incredibly hard to peg – and we mean that in the best way possible – as the label completely exploded older style of French chanson with experimental work from new talents in the 60s and 70s – then brought in strands of avant jazz, bossa nova, global rhythms, and even some folksy currents too – but all with this very creative, genre-crossing mode that's still without compare all these many years later! The label is best known for its famous records with singer Brigitte Fontaine – who makes an appearance here, but in the company of so many of Saravah's other overlooked talents – in a collection that looks at the early flourishing of recordings in the late 60s and early 70s, then moves into work from the great revival years of the label from the mid 90s onward. This package features notes in both English and French, and includes a lot of Saravah gems we haven't seen reissued elsewhere – titles that include "J'Attendrai" by Fred Poulet, "Maman" by Oscar Castro & Anna Vallejo, "Photo" by Bia, "Afrika Obota" by Pierre Akendengue, "Coeur De Rubis" by Francoise Kucheida, "Signaletique" by Areski & Jacques Higelin, "Le Temps D'Une Vie" by Pierre Barouh & Anna Vallejo, "Femme Parmi Les Femmes" by Francoise Hardy, "La Valse De L'Oubli" by Carole Laure, "Dans Ma Rue" by Areski, "Comme A La Radio" by Brigitte Fontaine, "Tiens J'Ai Dit Tiens" by Jacques Higelin, "Je Hais Le Gosses" by Allain Leprest, and "1962" by Gerard Ansaloni.

Dandelion SetThousand Strands – 1975 to 2015 ... LP
Buried Treasure (France), 2015. New Copy ... About April 22, 2016 (delayed)
There's a date range listed on the cover that stretches back to the 70s – not the actual age of the music on this set, but instead a way of indicating the decades worth of inspiration drawn upon by The Dandelion Set – especially the cooler post-psych elements of the UK scene in the 70s, and some of the trippier psych revival sounds of the following decade! These guys might have been right at home on Bam Caruso or early Creation Records – and share a similar love of the weirder, offbeat qualities of the late 60s – blending fuzzy performance with equally freaky production – using light touches of funk or analogue electronics along the way. Tracks on the record work together to create a very vivid audio scene – one that's echoed by the equally trippy liner notes by Alan Moore – and titles include "Harps Ascend", "Cosmic Flux History", "Tone Garden", "Pristina Strawberry Girl", "Redherringbone", "A Rasher Of Wind", "Gardense", and "The Third Programme".

✨✧ John Mayall's Blues BreakersBlues Breakers With Eric Clapton ... LP
Deram, 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Possibly one of the best-remembered albums by John Mayall's legendary Blues Breakers combo – thanks to vocals and guitar from a young Eric Clapton! Clapton at this point is way fresher than in later years – not prone to cliches, and still coming across with a raw, edgey power that is drenched in American blues tradition. Mayall's great too – wailing on harmonica, organ, and piano – and other members of the core group include John McVie on bass and Hughie Flint on drums – augmented by contributions from UK jazzers John Almond on baritone sax and Alan Skidmore on tenor. Titles include "All Your Love", "Little Girl", "Key To Love", "Parchman Farm", "Have You Heard", "It Ain't Right", and "Steppin Out". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ SandpipersGuantanamera ... LP
A&M, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The landmark first album from The Sandpipers – a set that not only sent big ripples through 60s pop in general, but which also really transformed the sound of male harmony groups at the time! The trio have a great way of mixing together jazz harmonies learned in the generation of the Four Freshmen and The Hi-Los with some of the folksy modes used by 60s groups of the folk revival – yet also manage their own weird dark space too, partly through the use of some slight Latin and Spanish touches that resonate perfectly with the A&M Records aesthetic of the time! The approach is heard famously in their sublime reading of "Guantanamera" – but the whole album is wonderful, and other tracks include "La Mer", "Things We Said Today", "Strangers In The Night", "What Makes You Dream, Pretty Girl?", and a sublime vocal rendition of "Cast Your Fate To The Wind". Arrangements by Mort Garson and Nick DeCaro, too! (Vocalists, Rock) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousAnother Splash Of Colour – New Psychedelia In Britain 1980 to 1985 (3CD set) ... CD
RPM (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 3 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really well-done set – one that brings together a very diverse se of tracks, along with a huge booklet of notes – all to focus on the surprising revival of psychedelic sounds in the UK during the early 80s! Unlike the psych revival in the US – which was mostly confined to the paisley underground of the period – the return of fuzz and freak really took a wide array of forms in England in the years after the initial rise of punk – from groups that returned to a core garagey style that was almost pre-psych, to others who maybe tripped out on solos even more than those in the past, to some who fused the best elements of the genre with more contemporary UK pop modes, and others who paved the way for the big Brit indie boom of the C86 years – sometimes even nudging the music surprisingly far in the charts! All those styles are here – and plenty more too – in a mighty nice box set that features 64 tracks in all – with titles that include "Keep Your Voice Down" by The Earwigs, "I Helped Patrick McGoohan Escape" by The Times, "Slow Patience" by The Attractions, "Endless River" by The Brainaic Five, "Do I Have To Be Here" by The Way Out, "Sunspots" by Julian Cope, "Hilly Fields" by Nick Nicely, "Wivenhoe Bells II" by Cleaners From Venus, "Work" by Blue Orchids, "Night Of The Jackal" by Charlie Harper, "Pass Myself" by Third Eye, "Still Dreaming" by Marble Staircase, "A Day Out With Jeremy Chester" by Biff Bang Pow, "Where Are You" by The Primevals, and "Dancing In My Mind" by The High Tide.
